Riesling Clare Valley South Australia
Of all the grape varietals Riesling is the one that is most expressive of regionality. Minute changes in soil, climate and aspect are directly reflected in theavours found in the final wine. The team at Leo Buring work closely with their viticulturists to identify the best vineyards, the choicest blocks and the best rows within each. Lime bouquets, florals and orange blossom, on the palate comes a rich round wine with flavours of sweet citrus and apple, lemon oils and honey, melons and musk. Appealingly dry yet vigorously fruit driven, it lingers at the close on a note of floral citrus and crisp mineral.
Light straw, lime hues. Calico cotton, lifted, full, floral notes, the first yellow freesias of spring and a hint of daphne. Restrained rapier acidity underlies bright, green, fresh squeezed lime, citrus blossom, structural backbone of sun baked, crystalline quartzite provides an enduring minerality which persists and tantalizes with mouth watering natural acidity. A compelling Clare Valley Riesling of opulence and structure.
